PLease anyone who reads this contact Comcast cable in the Virginia/D.C. area to get race coverage from the outdoor life network. Also everyone else in other states if your cable network doesn't have OLN call to try to get it. Thanks

Or you could just watch it on ABC. We used to get OLN here, but now with cablevision we don't anymore... Oh well.

oh boy! ABC! Let's see...
Live daily coverage of sufficient length to actually enjoy OR a one hour recap of 30+ hours of racing every Saturday. hmmm.
I guess there was always ESPN..

30 minutes each day:
15 min of commercials + 5 minutes of plugs for upcoming programs + 10 minutes of racing = just enough to piss you off.

GET BUSY! WRITE YOUR CABLE CO.! WRITE YOUR CONGRESSMAN/WOMAN/THING! WRITE YOUR PRESIDENT! PRAY! OLN COVERAGE OF THE TOUR IS A GOD GIVEN RIGHT FOR ALL CYCLISTS! IT'S TIME FOR A CONSTITUTIONAL AMMENDMENT!

...say they have no plans.....I guess we will probably get the WE (womens entertain. network) before we get OLN. Boy with that and Lifetime, men don't have a chance.
already have "WE" here! (nt)must_pedal_harder

You might try to get OLN as part of a satellite dish package if your local cable company won't carry it.

I called my cable comp. 2 weeks ago. No one had heard of OLN, and after being informed what it is and why I wanted to get it, they just said that they didn't have it, and had no forseeable plans to get it. I checked around, and Direct TV didn't have it, but Dish Network did, but only if I get America's Top 150 package, with 2 dishes (a 36" for 110, and a 24-32" dish for 119 - our need in HI to get the signals). I am going to bite the bullet tomorrow, so that I can receive OLN.

It is not in basic coverage. You have to upgrade to a sports package to get OLN.
